Indulge - Food Themed Art Exhibition, Call for Entry
Call for Art - Indulge:
Everybody has to eat! Some eat to live, while others live to eat. Food is essential to all of us. Food can bring us together, or push us apart. Food can be an oppressor or a catalyst for change. Food is a commodity that makes some people rich, while it kills others - and sometimes it is pure politics. For the 2012 summer show at Water Street Studios' Gallery in Batavia, IL, I have been invited to curate a show. Since I over the past years have become increasingly interested in the food industry in the Americas, both as a consumer, grower, enjoyer etc. I would like to put an exhibition together that similar to a buffet, presents a variety of options for the viewer to either sample or completely devour. Besides the traditional media, such as drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and photography, I hope to also include sound, video, installation and performance art. Additionally, I also hope to reach out to filmmakers, food activists, farmers, hobby gardeners, scientists and whomever else might be interested in conducting small workshops, talks or presentations in connection with the exhibition, as long as it relates to food of some sort.
